  ROBERT W. FAUBLE is numbered among the progressive farmers and stock-growers of Fulton Township, where he has passed his entire life, a scion of stanch pioneer stock.  He was born in the same neighborhood in which he now resides, on the 9th of October, 1849, and is a son of Isaac and Rachel A. (Watkins) Fauble, both of whom were born in Wayne county, Ohio, the former in 1815 and the latter in 1818.  Isaac Fauble was a son of Michael Fauble, who was born in Germany and who was the founder of the family in America having been one of the pioneers of Wayne County, Ohio, where both he and his wife died.  Isaac Fauble came with his wife to Fulton county in an early day, securing wild land in Fulton township and developing a good farm, upon which he died when fifty-eight years of age, his wife attaining the age of sixty-eight years.  He was an energetic, aggressive and industrious man, inflexible in his integrity and straight forward in all his dealings.  Though he died in middle life he had so well directed his efforts that he left his family in comfortable circumstances.  He and his wife continued resident of Fulton county until death, save for an interim of about two yeas, passed in Indiana.  They became the parents of six children, of whom the eldest died in infancy.  Jane is the wife of Jacob Garman, a farmer of Clinton township; Robert W. was the next in order of birth; James E. is a farmer of Swan Creek township; Sarah L., widow of George W. Fraker, is individually mentioned elsewhere in this work; and Rachel A. is the wife of Andrew J. Fraker, of whom specific mention is made on another page.  Robert  W. Fauble was reared to the study work of the home farm and his educational advantages in youth were those afforded by the local schools.  His entire life has been devoted to agricultural pursuits and upon the death of his parents he inherited a portion of the old homestead.  He and his wife are now joint owners of a well-improved farm of fifty-eight acres, and the same is maintained under effective and profitable cultivation, and the land being specially productive, and he also devotes no little attention to the raising of live-stock of good grades.  He met with some financial reverses during the period of general business depression in the early '90's, but the favorable conditions following the natural reaction in industrial affairs  enabled Mr. Fauble to recoup his losses, thus restoring him to independent circumstances.  In politics Mr. Fauble is a stanch advocate of the principles of the Republican party, and he has served in minor local offices of public trust, and fraternally he is identified with the lodge of Knights of Pythias at Delta.  Mar. 30, 1876, Mr. Fauble was married to Miss Clara J. Manley, who was born in Fulton township, this county, being a daughter of Whitfield Manley, an honored pioneer.  Mr. and Mrs. Fauble have seven children, all of whom are living.  Nellie and Ella (twins) were born Jan. 11, 1877, the former being now the wife of William J. Fleming, and the latter being the wife of Archibald B. Putnam, both of this county; Roy, who was born June 23, 1879, is employed in the city of Toledo; Edward, born Feb. 2, 1881; Clarence, born July 13, 1887; Ralph, born Mar. 30, 1889; and Florence, born Jan. 13, 1892, all remain at the parental home.
